About Waze

WAZE is a network of drivers that creates and shares dynamic, driver-generated live maps and traffic information. By simply driving around with a WAZE-enabled smartphone, drivers automatically contribute to and benefit from real time driving statistics. Together they create the only relevant reflection of traffic status and road availability in any place, at any moment. The resulting WAZE knowledge is shared for free with live driving instruction via the user's mobile, and available to all on the community-based website. With WAZE, drivers know how to detour traffic jams and local shortcuts to get to their daily destinations without delays caused by car accidents, road works, speed cams and other surprises along the way. In June 2013, Waze was acquired by Google. The valuation of Waze was reported initially as $1.1 billion but in Google's 10-Q it was reported be $966 million with with $847 million attributed to goodwill and $188 million attributed to intangible assets minus the $69 million in other net liabilities assumed from Waze's books.
